You've heard many times that praise is a weapon against the Enemy. But a good many of you think of that weapon as being specifically useful if you're battling negativity, discouragement, depression, murmuring, doubts, or one of the "negative" types of battles. Very few of you see much use for it in everyday life. But I want to open your eyes to see praise more as it really is in the spirit.
Praise is a weapon that defeats the Enemy in any battle. That's right--any battle! It could be a battle of persecution, it could be a battle for My supply, it could be a battle for unity, it could be a battle for your children. It doesn't matter what the attack or what the obstacle, praise is an extremely powerful weapon to set the Enemy back and bring victory.

It takes time to labor in prayer for someone's needs, but you could never meet all their needs yourself even if you invested your full time in it.

You're entering the ultimate in extreme warfare. It goes far beyond the confines of the flesh or mind, so the only way to win that warfare is to be willing to be used as a channel for My power, which can win it through you.

His eye never misses what we give in service to others. That means both the big things and the little things. There's nothing that escapes His gaze, and one day you'll be rewarded in full for all you have given. You never lose by giving, even if at times it looks like you lost. Even if you don't see any tangible results or fruit from your labors and giving here on Earth, you will receive in full in Heaven. That's something that is guaranteed.

I’m choosing to yield - I’m not going to be dragged along to fulfill the lords will. I’m going to willingly do what He asks of Me with joy in my heart.

Are you serving me to be loved and trusted by others, or to earn My respect? Seeing you serving Me with all your heart mind and spirit is all that matters to Me and should be all that matters to you! So if anything else begins to matter to you – it’s wrong, it’s out of line, it’s out of place and it’s not My perspective. Resist and rebuke it and move on! Wear the cloak of humility and the garment of praise.

Each time you set something of yourself alight, it turns to ashes, and another lily of My Spirit grows. Your goal is to burn away as much as you can of yourself and your own desires so that your heart is filled with very few weeds, and instead My lilies of dedication, yieldedness, and perfect love have sprouted everywhere in their place.

You're being trained in the best possible way in the areas of leadership, people handling, hearing from Me* responsibility, love and sacrifice, dedication, obedience* and the list goes on. Your children are making you better disciples, if you're really doing your best to rear them in My nurture and admonition.

Friday, January 19, 2007 Words of Wisdom...

Take a look at nature and the passing of the seasons. When winter comes, it seems like all plant life is dying out and all that is left is a cold wind blowing and a gray sky. But life is still present‚ only hidden in the warmth of the earth while the cold passes over. You can do the same when trials and difficulties arise. Come snuggle close to Me, bury yourself in My love and warmth‚ and let the problems and hardships of the moment pass over you. I will be like the warm earth all around you, protecting you and keeping you from all harm.

The main step that you need to take that will enable you to be free from fear, that will renew your faith, that will give you the power to have complete victory is this: Surrendering your will to Me. Come to Me and say, "Not my will, but Thine be done." Don't worry about what that will mean to you personally. I'll take care of that. I promise if you will take that step, you will receive the ability and the power to make it through the future.

It's all about the future!!

What IS the heavenly vision? First of all, it's knowing what God's highest will is for YOU, and then staying true to that course. It's making the choice to follow Him. It's grabbing hold of the key of destiny and knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are on Earth for a very good and special reason and purpose, and you are going to fulfill that purpose. It's being convinced that your time there is a stepping stone, a preparation and training ground for the next step--the next life.

In short, it's not looking at yourself and only seeing you and what's happening around you right now; it's knowing that what's happening now is working toward something better--something great. It's realizing that the Lord, Who loves you deeply, has great plans for your life, and it's so much more than today and just getting through today. It's all about the future!

Wednesday, January 17, 2007 By correcting the spiritual diet, the spiritual life is healed.

Of course there are many things that you need to work on.. The dangers of a list is that it can become a works trip. Or, you only try to correct some of the specifics, correct some of the things in the flesh, when the true work and true changes, are in the spirit.

When the spiritual is corrected, when the spiritual changes are made, then the things of the flesh follow after. So don’t look at this list as a list of thing that you try to change in the flesh.

Remember as you hear these things, and as you go about keeping them in mind and seeking Me about them further, that the solutions are spiritual. As you spend time with Me, as I’ve explained earlier, as you enjoy me more, as you walk more in faith, these other details will correct themselves. By correcting the spiritual diet, the spiritual life is healed.

One of the greatest fruits of prayer besides bringing great results and answers is the effect and fruit it has in your own life and spirit. It keeps you close to Me, keeps you desperate, keeps you in My Spirit, and protects you from other spirits—the spirits of the world, whether they be materialism or lethargy or selfishness or whatever. Prayer is one of the greatest protections you can have. It keeps your heart and spirit clean.

All of us have weaknesses that are our "thorns in the flesh." For if we didn't have any of these weaknesses and we were all so perfect, we couldn't help others much; we couldn't be sympathetic or compassionate if we were so self-righteous and unblemished. We couldn't even understand them. So sometimes we may be a lot more useful to the Lord with our afflictions and weaknesses--or a whole lot more humble and believing.

Sometimes some of you get the idea that if it's a "small" or "easy" thing, then that's the time to just get into it and take care of it. You're not consciously saying you can do it on your own without Me, but that is in essence what you're expressing, because you've developed the idea that you only need to call in the big power for the big things. When there's a big major thing that you know you can't take care of, then you pray. Whereas taking the approach of making prayer your first move or first reaction, whether it's an "easy" or "difficult" issue you're facing, is going to make things better and easier for you.

When there are misapplications of the Law of Love in the sexual realm, when people in the Family sin by using the Law of Love as an excuse for sexual liberties that are outside the Law of Love, and therefore not right‚ the Law of Love automatically gets the blame. This hurts people's faith in the Word, and many of you are consequently weak in faith when it comes to the Law of Love. Many of you aren't even sure if it actually works.

It takes strength of character to love, to reach out, to do the humble things—whether it's apologizing for something you said or did; appreciating someone you don't normally appreciate; suppressing a proud or negative comment; simply trusting Me when things don't go the way you'd like them to; trusting Me when you feel you should have gotten a better deal, knowing that I know and see all and will reward you even when you feel unappreciated by ­others; taking things patiently; making it your priority to live My Word and show My Spirit; and being Me to others to the best of your ability. This all takes strength, and that strength will come from making a strong threefold cord between Me and others and yourself. And the closer you draw to Me, the closer you will draw to others. This will be your strength.

You see it for what it is--worldly entertainment, part of the world. While you sometimes find it enjoyable, you don't let down your guard fully, you're desperate with Me to help you be discerning. And if it's something that I check you is harming you or damaging your spirit, you care more for your spiritual life than you do for some temporary entertainment and you get up and walk away from it. This is a spiritual strength that is developed, that is strengthened through sacrifices, through making hard decisions, through choosing spiritual values over earthly pleasures. When you have that spiritual strength and are using it and exercising it, then I'm much more comfortable giving you permission to do things that involve System entertainment, because I know that I can pull you away from it if need be, if it's something that's harming you or influencing you too much.
